The overly intense uncredited narrator is actor Addison Richards, who played a lot of cowboys, military officers, bank presidents, etc., in the '30s and '40s.

What could have been
Movies like this break my heart. There are so many examples of tools that were being created to improve society. It turns out they were all tossed in favor his high cost for profit medical care. Where would we be today if we showed every level of our society that we cared?
This is a pretty basic film. My favorite visual is the close up of two hands on an electric planer as someone is helping build a health center. The camera pans up and we see it's an old man smoking a cigarette. Ah, irony.

The Beginning of the 3 Trillion Dollar Great Society Bill
Watts. Yup a typical starting place. I recognize that "30 million people" figure. They used the exact same figure to justify Obamacare - a disaster to the healthcare industry. I guess if coloreds and bums living on the dole ain't got platinum healthcare - than nobody can have it.
Funny thing too...50 years later, 3 trillion dollah later, two terms of BHO,and 30 years of Maxine "the wonder woman" Waters to boot, coloreds are more honked off than ever.
Thank you LBJ, for The Great Society!

Here, Jose, Here's your toothbrush.
Excretiatingly long expose about why every small town needs health care workers and centers to care for the homeless and poor. Along with the low low volume on this, the thing drags on FAR too long for it's own good and subject, while it may be interesting is presented rather aloofishly. Is somewhat redeemed by the colorful residents and, of course, the dentist carving out Jose's name on his toothbrush for him using of course his dentist's drill.
